A Renewed Vision for King’s Wharf

A downtown waterfront view of the sun on the horizon. The potential of King’s Wharf is incredible. This new design is how we get there.

Site Plan

Here’s the idea: offer a pleasant surprise with every few steps. Spots to get down and touch the ocean. Streets alive with cafés and shops, others quiet enough to play hopscotch. Some parks full of families, others with no noise but the breeze. The best communities offer as many great little places as possible, providing a wonderful setting for all the parts of your life. That’s King’s Wharf.

Site features:

  • Green space beyond HRM requirements.
  • No increase in density.
  • Smaller, more diverse buildings.
  • Well-lit, comfortable, resident-focused streets.
  • Complete access to the waterfront with a boardwalk, beach and parks.
